An insider has revealed Adele was wheeled through her unsuspecting fans hidden in a sweaty box to get her on stage unnoticeably. The multi-award winning artist is taken through the audience inside a bulky equipment coffin where she sits with an iPad to keep her entertained.
She joked with fans during a performance in Sydney announcing they would laugh when they found out why she keeps emerging drenched in sweat, but a source has let the cat out of the bag by divulging the big secret.
When performing during arena tours, the British-based singer is able to use a series of tunnels to reach the stage undetected.
In order to avoid being mobbed by her adoring supporters, the 28-year-old is concealed inside a box designed to carry amps and instruments and wheeled through the crowd.
One downside is that several minutes inside the plastic container leaves her dripping with sweat – something she addressed early in her performance at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
‘How I get to this stage makes me so sweaty. I’m drenched. I can’t tell you till the end — you’ll laugh when you find out.’
A show insider has lifted the lid on the trade secret.
They told The Sun: ‘Adele sits in the box for several minutes as she is taken from her dressing room right to the centre of the crowd. Most of her fans just assume it’s a piece of kit they are moving, but it’s actually their idol sitting in a pretty small box a few feet from them.’
